Special for Floridian
Baptist College of Florida (BCF) hosted the Florida Bandmasters Association (FBA) District 2 Solo and Ensemble Festival for area middle and high school students on April 1. The event brought together between 100 and 150 students in grades 6 through 12, representing about a dozen schools from six area counties.
During the festival, students perform their pieces solo or in ensemble for one of the FBA certified judges to evaluate their performance. Students select their music from a state-adopted set of music, organized by student grade level and compositional difficulty.
Performances were scheduled every 10 minutes and judges provided written and oral evaluation as well as an overall score. The student performance rating scale ranges from 1 to 5, with 1 being a higher rating.
BCF staff and current students introduce visiting students to the campus and share information about music degree opportunities available there.
BCF offers an Associate of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Music in Worship Leadership, Bachelor of Music Education, and Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership.
